Tattooed with graffiti, two hopper cars await loading and transport at High Level’s grain terminal, late on a Sunday afternoon, as the sun sets.

Listening to – Neil Young’s ‘The Needle and the Damage Done,’ Steve Miller’s ‘Take the Money and Run,’ Aerosmith’s ‘Living on the Edge,’ The Who’s ‘Magic Bus,’ The Beatles’ ‘Across the Universe,’ Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Brilliant Disguise,’ Alice in Chains’ ‘Heaven Beside You’ and The Black Crowes’ ‘Twice as Hard.’

Quotes to Consider – (1) “When I photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.” – Annie Liebovitz; (2) “Let death be what takes us, not lack of imagination.” – Dr. B. J. Miller (palliative care physician); (3) “You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.” – Joan Miro

    Such a perfect title. The last two photos really appeal to me. It’s so cool how the steam flattens out on the horizon.
    Love the musical selection, too!

      Hey there, Laurie:

      I am returning to this blog after time away at teachers’ convention. It is a curiosity that tagging grain hopper cars with graffiti occurs – the why, the how and the when are first questions and then second questions involve the viewer’s perspective of the when and where. And, then with me there is the question of surprise … finding the hopper car tattoos when I didn’t expect them. I had some intention of investigating the graffiti … to see what was there.

      The steam flattening out on the horizon has to do with colder temperatures late on a Sunday afternoon, perhaps in the second week of January.

      Thanks for checking in … I’ll meander to your blog in the next few days.

      Take care … 🙂
